My sister sent this to me earlier in the week. For those of you who never really experienced the immigrant life, it's a neat little ( albeit a bit long) snippet of what it was like growing up Italian in New York.
In a way, it's very similar to other cultures - family was the most important thing, and everyone was close to each other. And the FOOD !!!!! Yummy ! Like most people, we spoke our own language, hung out with our own people, an eventually we 'Americanized', an worked our way into and up the ladder of the American Dream. A lot of that is missing in my own family now, and it's nice little trip back into life as a kid.
Here's what it was like..
and here's a clip of something else with Italians. If you are sensitive about insults to italians , or the 'N' word, skip this one.....
